Dan Wright at the 2010 Laughing Horse new act final

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

Dan Wright comes across as Mr Confident – and no surprise since he’s been part of the Electric Forecast double act for about a decade before going solo, and has cult fame as the diminutive half of Big Cook Little Cook on children’s TV. Perhaps in rebellion to that, he did seem to use the word ‘fuck’ with unnecessary frequency – or perhaps it just stood out more because of his background.

Wright’s delivery is hugely animated, with big physical gestures that pretty much make the act, given that some of the material, about being ginger or affecting the accents of urban youth (however accurately) is rather safe.

In contrast, the section about the bizarre Post-It notes his Dad leaves around the house is inherently stronger and more distinctive, so more soberly delivered.
